I hope you enjoyed the first of the series last post, of model Eclipse Monday and some low key lighting figure nudes. When you think of boudoir or indoor nudes, the first idea is always on a bed. Why is that? Ironic, I say that and on the last post, the bed is where she started out. So many ways to contort the body in it’s natural, and intimate bedroom setting, good sensuality that comes naturally with that domestic environment. So, we then utilized the furniture which was nothing to look at….so using low key mood lighting, In placed the emphasis on the subject and her body, and glamorous features as opposed to the environment. Even the floor in certain areas. A one bed motel room with a bathroom, how much of a photoshoot can you do there? Well, I am putting the question to test. Are nice huge mansions nice for photoshoots? YES absolutely, but are they always a necessity? No. Welcome to motel in the hood nude series 2.
And then there is always a 1960’s-70’s clothes hanging rod practically designed for nude figure study work, LOL! Great way to stretch the body and create interesting symmetry.
A 1960’s (I’m guessing?) wall heater in the small hallway to the toilet, for an industrial look. A great photoshoot can happen anywhere. It’s a matter of best utilizing what is there and blending the subject into it.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this part of the series. One final part coming soon, some long exposure work in the old tile bathroom, I may have saved the best for last, though totally different looks and concepts. Stay tuned 🙂
